[Xmca-l] Re: Habits (Greek: ethos)



Sorry, can't keep my hands off this. "Ethos" in Greek is one of those 
untranslatable words that bundles up a whole set of concepts without an 
equivalent in English. It includes the idea of habits, habitually, but 
it is not rght to say it *is* the Greek word for habit.

I'm not against us discussing habits at all; it just awoke the 
slumbering classicist in me.
